Maestro resigns from national orchestra after musicians revolt

We reported bad blood last year at the Slovene Philharmonic Orchestra where the chief conductor Uroš Lajovic was accused of being verbally abusive towards his musicians, allegedly calling them ‘lazy dogs’.

Lajovic, 72, denied any bad conduct.

Yesterday, after a five-month stand-off, he resigned.

A retired professor of conducting at the University of Performing Arts in Vienna, Lajovic taught Kirill Petrenko, incoming chief of the Berlin Philharmonic.
